Renovated arthouse to showcase Latin films
The Film Society of Lincoln Center will reopen the renovated Walter Reade Theater on Sept. 7 with Latinbeat 2007, a series of 23 titles from throughout Latin America.
Notable Gotham preems among them include Fox Searchlight’s “Under The Same Moon (La Misma Luna)” and Gael Garcia Bernal’s directing debut, “Deficit.” There will also be a sidebar honoring four directors essential to the growth of recent Mexican cinema: Alejandro González Iñárritu, Marisa Sistach, Carlos Reygadas and Fernando Eimbcke.
The series, now in its 10th year, runs through Sept. 18.
The Walter Reade, in a project distinct from the larger construction project north of 65th Street at Lincoln Center, is getting new seats and acoustical tiles and other polishes and will be closed for two weeks starting in August.
